We're now up to day 4 of PlayStation's E3 Pre-show plans. After having Tetris Effect, a Days Gone release date, and a new title from DONTNOT called Twin Mirror today we're treated with a new PlayStation VR title. Today's announcement was for a new VR title called Ghost Giant from the company Zoink, developers of Fe and Flipping Death.
In the trailer shown we can see that the game is based on the relationship between the ghost giant (that's you) and the small animal inhabitants of the town, specifically Lewis. After the player's hands form in VR and we attempt to comfort Lewis we do quite the opposite as he screams and runs away. From the rest of the trailer, we see the ghost building up a friendship with Lewis by helping him complete tasks like picking flowers and putting back together his house. Of the shots we see of the town you're able to interact with it as if it was a set of dollhouses, peering through windows or opening up walls to see what's happening inside, you can even help one turn on his TV.
With the PlayStation Blog post, more information was revealed about the game and the characters within it. During your time as a Ghost Giant not only will you be helping Lewis with the family sunflower farm that he runs with his mother but will be able to interact with furniture, vehicles, and trees. That coupled with the ability to look into peoples houses have developers Zoink describing their game as a "dollhouse sandbox." In order to bring this adventure exclusively to PlayStation VR Zoink is working with Sara Bergmark Elfgren, a Swedish writer whose works have been translated into 25 languages.
